Forum: GratefulDead Subject: How do you store your shows?

So, this is a question just because I'm curious. I spent the day doing something I've been putting off... label, and file for new shows I've gotten. Next will be record them on my list. Figure since I'm off all week, this is the time to do it.

So how do you store your shows? Are they kept only on your hard dive? On your MP3 player? in CD/DVD envelopes in crates or boxes? do you file in CD albums? Do you write on your disks in sharpie (some people who trade find this to be a major no-no!?) or use a label system? If you have a list is it at db.etree or Phishhook, or somewhere else? and if you don't have a list, how do you remember what you have?

I write on mine with a sharpie, keep them in order by date in CD albums (love that I can just grab them and take them with me), and I have a list up at Phishhook.
once again, just curious to see what everyone does.

"Archived" on my new (thanks all for the tips) ext hard drive; plus a set of DVDs with all shns for a second backup; then, each show is burned to CD(s), which is labeled with a sharpie micro, placed lovingly in a CD case (the 'original' thick ones), to which is added an insert of sorts--I have a stock of dead images (eg, smokestack symbol) on paper that fits so I see an image on one side of the box, and label the edge (fits the quarter inch edge) with the date and place so that it is visible when you place the CD thingy on a CD rack...

Jeeezzz...what an anal retentive I have become. Sad to re-read this post.

I store the great ones in my head. The voices are so happy that I do so . . . .

I keep track (NOT!)...i have 4 large CD books, with shows everywhere. Noticed i need to use the books that are completly open at the top so the plastic edge don't rub the top inner edge of the CD. I try to keep my CD's from dust or touch, much like i handled vinyl records back in the day. Only touching the edges. I wonder if dust particles burn into the CD when it's played...
I found that those microfiber dust cloths do not scratch CD's. I HATE to loan out CD's unless they know how to handle them properly. No fingerprints, smudges -etc!!
Yesterday I found 3 shows I'd DL'd twice (!)
Forgetting I had them already-so i take good care of my CD's but still....a ball of confusion! lol

why is writing on the disc in sharpie a major no-no??? just curuios - hadn't heard that before

p.s. - mostly store on external hard drives or cpu harddrive even after burning to cd - love to have those backups in case the cd gets "crunched" somehow

well what I've been told is that the writing slowly ruins the disk. I didn't know this when I first started trading and wrote on the disks, and got a stern 'NO'' for doing that! Now I just put the shows in CD/DVD sleves and label that way.



btw, sending you an e-mail...

Really?????? I wonder how it does that???? (no sarcasm, literal question - can't figure that out)

Anyone out there know how a sharpie on the non-playing side can compromise the integrity of a disc??? would be nice to know since i do it to my own.



edit - never mind - just quickly researched - it is supposedly bunk - for the oil of the sharpie to damage the disc the exposure would need to be approximately 140 deg farenheit with about 85 percent humidity for long exposure and even then no proof. Some people thought it was the alcohol in the sharpie - from what i read that evaporates within 2 hours. Another big hoax that people buy into - looks like i'll continue to use them. Scratches will kill the cd long before a little sharpie. Typical hardcore trader paranoia. If i send any out to people who dont like sharpies - please warn me in advance - i use them out of habit.

Sounds like I'd better quit keeping those things inside the oven. Something inside me kept telling me that was a bad idea.

Another myth, using Fuji Disc's that are only made in Japan (not Taiwan). Sounds like a political ploy to me.

yeah, that's what i just found out online - plus i called an somewhat high profile IT friend of mine and he started laughing out loud as soon as a started asking him (granted he had had a couple of beers) - but he made me feel better. Total bunk according to him - made it sound like an inside joke in the computer industry that got out into the "normal" non computer world. Guess my discs are safe for now.

You wouldn't beleive some of that "Typical hardcore trader paranoia" that you speak of... Some people (especially at Phishhook) have their list up, with numberd 'instructions' that you have to follow in order to trade with them.... certain disks, no writing on them, how you send it by postage, etc. They take a fun hobby and turn it into work!

couldn't be bothered with people like that - that is just pretentious bullshit (no offense to them if that is how they like their hobby). just not for me. i kinda like the free flow approach. if i got a disc that i didn't like the "writing" - i'd just reburn it and be damn happy and grateful i got it in the first place. but that's just me. me not picky - me just like music. everyone here has been great!!!

that's how I am too. :) I don't trade with people like that. It takes the fun out of everything, and the thoughtfulness out of sharing.

Hoho...heehee...I store 'em on DVD and usually get three to four or more shows on a 4.7gb disc. I keep track of my shows with a database program, Microsoft Works Database, but I'll bet you have one such like on your computer, or there are freeware versions.

hey Tiger...took a look at your want list. Don't have too much '81 myself, but I'm working on that year now. I trade by recommendations, but if I get something your looking for I'll keep you in mind. :) Phil who I get most shows from at DH, has mostly super crisp SBD's!

Tiger...I took a quick list at your want list. I know I have at least 9/6/80, 10/10/80 and 9/17/82. I can send these your way if you want. I'll try to track you down with a PM at shn/flac.
